Bavarian Baby Blanket
Recently, I've had two new babies enter my world. One is the daughter of a friend and the other, my new nephew. As a result, I've had babies on the brain. When you see a newborn and you look into those big eyes, the feelings of wonder and joy come streaming back. What a gift!
I thought I'd share a little peek at the baby blanket I'm making for my nephew. I was looking through my personal library for inspiration, when I came across a book on Bavarian Crochet about which I had completely forgotten. I purchased it rather spontaneously and then undoubtedly became distracted by numerous things. I love the look of Bavarian crochet. It reminds me of quilting and I especially like the way it blends colors together. That subtle overlapping along with the texture is so appealing to me. I hope it will appeal to my nephew too, because this is the beginning of his new blanket.
